Website Accessibility Training
In all our courses and training we concentrate on explaining practical problems and solutions. Our courses cover the WAI and Section508 guidelines as well as other important issues that we have experienced over many years experience of working with the Internet and disabled web users.
Our on-line tutorials are designed for those who would like to learn the fundamentals of web accessibility at their own pace in their own environment. The tutorials follow the stages of building a website and explain how to build in accessibility as you go. Each tutorial has a discussion area for comments and feedback. The course consists of 12 topic areas which are each broken down into manageable sections.
The course covers the following
- How disabled people use the web
- Producing accessible content
- Creating and applying visual styles
- Including images, multimedia and scripts in an accessible manner
